D...I...V...O...R...C...E in the words of Dolly Parton, but have you considered also the damage divorce and separation has on your credit score?
I have only been working at CVS Ltd for a few months and had not really given much thought to how someone’s credit score becomes bad, but it has really been an eye opener for me.A large percentage of our enquiries at CVS Ltd come from people who have either recently been divorced, or have separated from their partners. The situation not only leaves them emotionally drained but with the added pressure of financial debt creating a bad credit score, which in turn means they will find themselves being declined funding to help them rebuild their lives.
Divorce and separation no matter what your finances are, can leave a huge dent in your accounts, check out these settlements, they are enough to make your eyes water!

At CVS Ltd we take our privacy protection and security very seriously so you do not have to worry, your details are safe with us. If you are a victim of identity fraud this can effect your credit score, so here are some pointers on keeping safe.
Firstly, let’s look at the difference between the two, Identity Theft is when someone steals your personal details and identity fraud is when someone uses your details to commit fraud.

It's very frustrating when you are a new company and you want to lease a company car or van to visit customers and or deliver your products and services. Yet find yourself in a situation where mainstream companies will not accept you.
Lots of people these days find themselves with a bad credit scores.
Your credit score is a vital part of your life as this will determine how successful you will be when applying for affordable finance, if you have a bad credit score you will find yourself being declined by mainstream. Lenders will look at your credit score before anything else and if it is not up to scratch you will find yourself being declined, and if you are declined this will impact even further on your existing credit score.
There are a few credit reference agencies out there but the main ones are Experian and Equifax each one will probably have a different credit score for you, for example if you have good credit with one you may fall into poor credit with the other. Each time you apply for finance from a lender that lender will then allocate you
One of a company’s largest expenses can be vehicles. Whether a sole trader with a “white van” or a larger business that operates a fleet of vehicles you need to know what your options are and the most cost effective way of operating company vehicles.
Traditionally many companies bought their vehicles and kept them for a certain amount time before renewing them. More recently businesses have turned to contract lease hire as an alternative to owning the vehicles. But what is the difference for companies?
Off Balance Sheet Financing
Leasing vehicles is referred to as “off balance sheet financing”- this means the vehicles are not shown on a company’s balance sheet as either an asset or liability as they would be if purchased with a loan. By keeping vehicles and other equipment off the balance sheet it reduces the debt burden of that company. Businesses only have a certain amount of credit available to them.
